A new motorized boat launch facility in the town of Indian River on the Indian River, managed by Tuscarora Township. Indian River is a full service community with hotels, outfitters, restaurants, bars, and ice cream shops. It is also near the North Central State Trail and Marina Park which hosts a lot of community events. The launch is just downstream of the confluence of the Little Sturgeon River and the Indian River.

Developed boat access.

Cement launch and docks are very busy in the summer months. It is on the bend of the river, not a great access point for non-motorized. Suggest launching across the Little Sturgeon River at Marina Park.

The sign for this site is in the water/on shore/bank (visible from water).

A nearby local outfitter provides rentals and tours.
